Easyjet (thank God!) doesn't go to Prestwick but to Glasgow Airport. Ryanair, however, does...

Am booking the flights this evening, however Ticketmaster (UK) don't have the event listed yet...

Any good hotels/b&b's near Braehead?

Cheers,


Nick :wink:

I'm up for it. Hopefully it will be a better venue than Dundee. An even bigger 808 get together - I like it!

I got this back from Colours:

"Ticketmaster online is not up and running yet but you can pay by credit card
on 0141 332 4400"

I also received the following info:

"Tickets have gone on sale already and you can buy them in HMV stores across Scotland, as well as all our usual ticket outlets, the festival has been confirmed"

l8rs,

This makes it to the NME ( http://www.nme.com/news/101415.htm ):

DANNII MINOGUE is set to join current chart stars X-PRESS-2 and veterans 808 STATE on the bill of the inaugural COLOURSFEST dance event in Scotland in June.

The Aussie actress turned singer, who signed a six-album deal with London Records earlier this year, is to relaunch her career at the 10,000 capacity festival at Braehead Arena near Glasgow on June 2.

The line-up also includes Dirty Vegas, K-Klass, Seb Fontaine, Sister Bliss, Erick Morillo, Graeme Park, David Morales, DJ Tiesto and Jengaheads.

Dance DJ Pete Tong’s London Records label is reported to have outbid five other labels and came up with a ‘huge’ offer to sign up Minogue, who has been working on material in New York with Roger Sanchez.

Although her musical career has been resolutely eclipsed by that of her sister Kylie, Dannii had 10 Top 30 hits during the '90s and most recently featured on Riva’s Number Two hit last year, ‘Who Do You Love Now?’.

Coloursfest promoter Ricky Magowan said Minogue plans to ‘follow the family tradition’ of reinvention when she relaunches her career at the festival: ‘This year is going to be massive for Dannii, and we’re delighted to bring her to Scotland. It adds something completely different to Coloursfest.’

The event runs from 2pm to 4am.


Ho hum...

See you in the Main Arena

I'll have anything, as long as it's not Robbie Craig again.
